    The HTC One (M8) is one of the hottest Android phones in the market today. We've reviewed a lot of it, we've compared a lot of it, and we've even changed a couple of our own paradigms in the process. Some say that the best part of the One (M8) lies in its hardware, but most of us have found HTC's approach to software, ...

    Buy a new smartphone, and on the spec sheet you'll find no shortage of sensors: accelerometer, magnetic field sensor; hell, you might even have a barometer. And with so many of these sensors living within our hardware, and many of them as commonplace as they are, it's easy to gloss over them, not really giving them a ...

    Those quotes up there in the title do more than apologize for our unoriginal, lame pun: they acknowledge a truth that's gotta be tough for Amazon to swallow. The company's first smartphone, which we laid hands on last week, has seen mixed reviews in its first wave of press. There are good reasons for that. With a ...

    Is Lenovo really intending to crank-out 60-odd smartphones before the end of the year? We continue to wonder if that boast from earlier this month is the stuff of bravado or maybe just a poor translation, but whatever the company's goals are over the next several months, its more immediate future looks like it will ...

    Instagram has proven that some of us just want a social network for sharing photos, and especially if it's a place where we won't get bothered by Candy Crush invites. Facebook saw this success early on, and did a smart move in acquiring the company and letting it be. Together with Facebook, we've seen how Instagram has ...

    Rumors about Samsung's involvement in a project to deliver a virtual reality accessory for its smartphones have been snowballing since the spring. Early, vague talk about a VR headset gave way to evidence of an official Gear VR name, and just a few weeks back a leak appeared to reveal a render of the actual hardware. ...

    Michael reviewed the LG G3 back in June and called it "more than just a pretty screen." I followed-up a few weeks later with my thoughts, which turned out to be more of a corroboration than a rebuttal. Despite all the collective time we spent with the South Korean G3, we didn't get a full look at the phone and its ...

    While users may not have always responded favorably, the ability of OEMs to deliver wildly divergent looks for their Android UIs could be seen as big success story for the sort of openness and flexibility that only Android offers. In the very early days of Android, everything looked the same. Manufacturers kept the ...

    Sony's Xperia Z3 is still very much an enigma; looking at the hardware specs that have leaked, it's difficult to appreciate how Sony intends to make the handset a meaningful improvement over the Xperia Z2. Maybe the most obvious changes have emerged in some of the leaked pics we've seen, and even then they've seen ...

    If the Silver and Grey HTC One M8 options (and black, if yore on Sprint) were not enough for you, don't worry. Following last year's example with the HTC One (M7), when the manufacturer made available, post launch, different color options, we now get two additional flavors for this year's flagship, the One M8. Red, as ...

    LG breaks record for smartphones shipped as the South Korean manufacturer has published its quarterly results. Aside from growth in the TV sector, LG is entitled to bragging with its 14.5 million smartphones shipped in the second quarter of the year.

    Sony sure appears to be working on a new flagship-level Android, and if the rumors are to be trusted, this handset could arrive as the Xperia Z3. We've had more than a few chances to check out some hardware in one form or another, be that individual components, line-art sketches, or even a few in-the-flesh pics, but ...

    When it comes to analyzing the quality of a smartphone's camera, there are two main approaches. There's the guided style: "We had a gander at the new [Smartphone] from the fine folks at [Smartphone Manufacturer], and we took its camera out for a spin to see how it performed under a variety of lighting conditions.

    Whatever happened to that rumored metal-bodied Galaxy S5, the phone we were calling the Galaxy F? Sure, we got the closest thing to a GS5 “Prime” with the release of the quad HD LTE-A model, but there was this separate idea of a handset with a metal body not too far removed from the kind of thing we see with the HTC ...
